Tom Peters and Nosferatu in Fresno

Lecturer Tom Peters was featured in the Fresno Bee prior to his performance of Nosferatu. The paper noted, “Peters, a 2014 Grammy nominee in the chamber music/small ensemble category for “Cage: The 10,000 Things,” performs an original electronic score…Interest in creating contemporary musical scores for classic silent films is a blend of his own passion for avant-garde music and the influence of “a family of film buffs.” He’s fascinated by the look of silent films because the visuals are so important.

Peters has been creating contemporary musical soundtracks for silent movies since 2008, including “The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari,” “The Passion of Joan of Arc” and “Pandora’s Box.” His score to John Ford’s “The Iron Horse” will premiere in March 2015 at The Autry National Center in Los Angeles.”
